Cameron Ballantyne was named new executive director of the Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence on Oct. 18 and will oversee the coalition’s organizational efforts in both Reno and Las Vegas.

He replaces Sue Meuschke, who previously led the nonprofit for 32 years.

“As a board, we are eternally grateful for the legacy that Sue Meuschke has left us,” Amanda Cuevas, NCEDSV Board President, said in a statement. “Now, we are excited to move forward with … Cameron. His prior experience creating innovative solutions, championing the causes he worked for, and his history of leadership enable us to see a bright future for NCEDSV.”

Ballantyne received a degree in Journalism-Electronic Media with a minor in Russian from the University of Oregon, and a Master of Public Administration with an emphasis in Non-Profit Management from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, according to an Oct. 18 press release. He also graduated from the Leadership Arts Institute with the North Texas Business Council for the Arts.

With previous executive leadership experience at organizations such as ABC News, American Red Cross and the Boys & Girls Club of America, Ballantyne’s management qualities awarded him “Honorable Mention” for National Non-Profit Spokesperson of the Year by PR News publication, according to an Oct. 18 press release.

“I look forward to assisting the NCEDSV member organizations across the state to support our fellow Nevadans during their greatest times of need,” Ballantyne said in a statement. “I have always felt close to the state of Nevada from past travels. I am excited to lead a passionate team who strives to support survivors and speak up when advocacy is needed.”
